Brain Injury? Spinal Cord Injury?
Our Attorneys Can Help You At Every Step
An injury to the brain or spinal cord can instantly change a person's life. Sometimes people experience a recovery after such a serious personal injury. But in many cases, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries can lead to permanent disability or death. We know because our brain injury lawyers deal with these cases all the time in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Most injury victims often require expensive, ongoing medical care. They also often suffer from psychological and emotional stress due to their injuries, time away from work and family challenges. Other family members also often experience significant emotional trauma due to such injuries.
When such injuries occur due to someone else's reckless or negligent behavior, you should not have to pay for expenses associated with your accident. That's why it's critical that you contact the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone in Massachusetts or the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone & Morelli in Connecticut as soon as possible. Our attorneys have decades of experience working with families facing a serious injury to the head or spine cause by an accident.
Impact of a brain injury
Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild concussions to severe injuries that result in permanent brain damage. Such injuries often occur due to two main types of head injuries:
- Closed head injuries (Injuries to the head that don't penetrate the skull)
- Open head injuries (Injuries to the head that penetrate the skull)
Open head injuries result in many of the most severe injuries. But often, it's difficult to tell the severity of a head injury immediately after an accident. That's why it's critical that you or a loved one who suspects they have a head injury seek immediate medical treatment, then contact us.
Our law firm does not underestimate the effect of any type of brain injury. That's because even a so-called mild TBI can lead to:
- Memory loss
- Sleep problems
A severe brain injury can lead to the symptoms listed above plus other serious cognitive deficits. Victims may have problems speaking or moving. There may be sensory issues, such as loss of sense of touch. A brain injury victim may lose his or her vision. We also handle cases involving physical and emotional changes.
How a spinal cord injury can affect you
A spinal cord injury can lead to partial or full paralysis. If you experience a spinal cord injury, you may have one of the following forms of paralysis:
- Tetraplegia (also known as quadriplegia), which affects the ability to move the arms and legs
- Paraplegia, which affects the lower body, including the legs
Your injury could have an effect on your sexual relationship. Other impacts include loss of control of your bladder or bowels. You may also have difficulty breathing or coughing when experiencing chest congestion due to damage to your spine.
